Whether it is through the hand that offers you a way back to standing, or the fireman that pulls someone out of a building, we have all experienced someone in our lives whom we can call an angel. Whether it was a minor thing on a bad day that just helps us cope, or a major action that changed our lives, most of us have looked skywards and thanked God for that person’s help. Today is the day to recognize that, during Be An Angel Day.
Learn about Be An Angel Day
We would be nowhere without the kindness of other people, right? In our darkest moments or in our time of need, we rely on the help of others to see it through. After all, life can be difficult at the best of times, and so when you work as a team, it becomes easier and challenges can be overcome. The human race is truly remarkable, and we often find that help is there from unexpected sources. It could even be a complete stranger. Be An Angel Day celebrates this, and it gives us the opportunity to let our angelic sides shine through.
This day encourages us to inspire and support those who need it. It also is about recognizing people who have been angels to us. Whether it is poor planning, bad news, or something entirely out of our control; we all have bad days. Sometimes, we cannot even pinpoint why we are feeling that way. On those days, it is important to notice the people that make us feel good. You should recognize their energy, efforts, and kindness.
History of Be An Angel Day
Started to encourage people to do random acts of kindness, Jayne Howard Feldman opened the doors to this celebration in 1993. Since then, it has become an entity in and of itself, helped along in no small part by social media. The movie Pass It Forward is an amazing example of how random acts of kindness can become something more than any one person could ever have hoped. Even now, this day gets more and more recognition every year, more and more are jumping on the bandwagon of random kindness.
